It's a very sturdy case and fits well.

The outside rubber cover is loose all around the plastic shell and the plastic shell does not open easy enough so the phone can be cleaned !!

The Good:
-Amazing drop protection.
-Grip is nice for holding onto it.
-The phone doesn't slide thanks to the rubber outer.

The Bad:
-Its bulky (you should already know this.)
-The Clip is cheap and likes to break (not unusable however.)
-The Rubber outer shell will stretch over time and fit loosely on the inner case. (It still stays attached but VERY annoying.)
-The Screen protector is great at preventing scratches but makes the display look cheap and oily. (I poked my out and put on a Zagg after a month or so of use.)

Conclusion:
If you don't care about the look and feel of your slim gorgeous S3 than this is perfect, I have dropped it from shoulder height onto the pavement and it didn't affect it in any way... Made my heart skip a beat but the phone is fine.

I bought the Otterbox for it's protective qualities, NOT for it's looks.

The protection starts with two layers of hard plastic that snap together, tightly, "encapsulating" the phone. Followed by a rubber exoskeleton. Even the holes not used most of the time (headphone socket & usb/charger plug), have a covers on them that easily open when needed. The Otterbox also has a clear protective cover for the touch screen. It works perfectly, even with a second screen protector I had previously put on it, before getting the Otterbox (the 1st screen protectors is still on), with no issues.
One small (somewhat), issue is the rather tall lip that encirlces the face of the phone. Working close to the edges of the screen, the lip interfere (just a little) but not enough that I would be concerned about.

Some reviews whine about the sleak looks & pretty white outer layer dissapearing in this tank-like case. To that I say, "read the first sentence of this review"!! The case is not entirely bad looking, the front is bland, the back is business-like with a mature look....I like that! I'm a contractor working in all kids of environments that will kill any electronic device fast (humid, dusty, sometimes in the rain), etc. With this case, I'm not worried about the phone's safety.

GET IT IF: You want the job of proctecting your phone well and hassle-free.
DON'T GET IT IF: You are all about people seeing you with the prettiest phone and showing off it's looks.

YES, I would buy this case again.

Very well built case that will stand up to the daily abuse that comes with my job. Otterbox has great customer service for their products. The outer skin become stretched at the bottom of the case so I contacted Otterbox and within a day they contacted me back with instructions on how to get a replacement free of charge. Had the new outer skin in less then a week. They are the best at standing behind their products.

Stretched case!!!!!!!! Just like every other silicone case they produced for these phones and i hear the iphones are having the same problem==went to the website but they want me to take picutes and documents all kinds of crap and then send it to them,,,,,

Heck they know the cases stretched,,why dont they just send everyone who purchased a Defender series about 20 of them..that should get us thru about a year and a half before we need more...

43.00!!!!!!!!

I have only had this a little over a month when the outer case started to stretch. I had to know what this is going to be like in two years. Do not buy unless you want to buy a new one every few months. I thought this was a good product, I know I was wrong.

Got this item at the same time as the phone. Belt clip broke in about 4 weeks. Silicone cover is now loose after 6 months and no longer seals to plastic case. Replacing it with another manufacturer's cover. REAL P.O.C.

Will this item protect your Samsung Galaxy S3 phone? Yes! However, beware, the rubber that fits around the hard case will expand overtime. You may want to google this issue...many people are experiencing the same problem.

Bottomline: This item is defective and not worth the money!
